Heritage Academy exists to this end.

Our players have a “growth mindset.” They believe that their intelligence, athletic abilities, and character are things that they can improve in meaningful ways. For many of our players, softball is more than a sport. The team has become family, and the game has become a passion and for some possibly even their destiny. They amaze me at their ability to learn and get better at what they do each week. They believe in themselves and each other.” What more could a coach ask for. Their next game is April 13th at home against Berean Academy.

“The Reach” by Ruby Valadez
“This is one of my favorite artworks, since I enjoy the value of its depth, and how it represents that everyone is reaching for something within their life.” – Ruby Valadez
Unaware by Ruby Valadez
“I saw the spider and its prey, and even though it is not the main subject, it points out how so many things happen around us that we are not aware of. I really love this photo, because of its color, story, and meaning behind it.” – Ruby Valadez
